My name is indeed Les Wade, the author of several small volumes of poetry posted to the Internet Archive Database. However, I am not that Les Wade who was "a Canadian middle-distance runner. He competed in the men's 1500 metres at the 1932 Summer Olympics" and whose date of death, according to the Wikipedia entry you've linked to, is unknown. I assure you, I am alive and kicking, and sadly, am not Canadian. So I am asking you to please remove this spurious, misleading and totally false citation you have added to the following web page AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!


Les Wade (still among the living)

Oh, p.s.

I am not, repeat, not asking you to remove any of my books. I definitely want them to remain here at the Internet Archive. Simply remove or delete the link to Wikipedia you have inserted.

Again, thanks.

Les Wade (the living non-Canadian one)
